Then and Now

Watching the sunset
finding my soul
dealing with abuse
no outlet or love
sitting alone in the room
crying my heart out
feeling neglected
no support as a foster youth
drawing a picture of the sunset
worrying about tomorrow
recovering from sexual abuse
no one understanding me
watching the kids play outside
wondering if God's real
dealing with anxiety
feeling like a nobody
Now watching the cars go by
finding out my interest
dealing with side effects of the past maltreatment
friends to call my own
Sitting on the couch
knowing god has a plan for me
dealing with finacial issues
feeling overwhelmed with college
but now independent
